ATTENTION ALL YOU BUDDING KARTERS OUT THERE WITH KARTSPORT NZ PRACTICE LICENSES...

You are very welcome to come along to any Club Day regardless of it being a points series or club championship. Catch the action, see the format, learn some skills....and....DEFINITELY BRING YOUR KART.

We will open the track over the lunch break and after racing so you can practice what you have been watching. Also, a lot of racing members will be there and will be only too happy to offer technical and racing advice.

If demand is there we can open the track for you at other times during the day if you wish...we are flexible so please don't hesitate to ask for Terry Palmer or Marin Vucich or Russell & Gaye Hoskins or Graeme Lambert or the chick on the gate Sheryl McIntosh in the first instance. We all hang on the concrete opposite the entrance to the grid area.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

CLUB INFO:

Click here for an Excel kart set-up sheet where you can record all your data for each meeting - a great resource to look back at see from past events what works and what doesnt. You can print the second page on the back of the first page so you can record lap times, rpm, temp etc for each race and lap so you see all the data for a meeting on one page. There is also a page to record your base set-ups. Best to go 'save as' when the prompt comes up, save it, then open it in Excel.

Lap records (as recorded by the AMB lapscoring system) are here.
